Abstract:

"Divulging the rich tradition of homosexuality in the arts from an unabashed perspective, Gay Art represents a unique effort in the art publishing market whose cultural relevance will ensure its success. It is a scientific study led by Professor James Smalls who teaches art history in the prestigious University of Maryland, Baltimore. The author highlights the sensibility particular to homosexuals, and abandons all classical cliches and sociological approaches. This book examines the process of creation and allows one to comprehend the contribution of homosexuality to the evolution of emotional perception. In a time when all barriers have been overcome, this analysis offers a new understanding of our civilisations masterpieces."--Publisher description.
